Despite all the drama, one thing we wouldn't dream of missing was Bernhardt Design's annual dinner at the Gramercy, where we were finally able to relax surrounded by some of our closest design buddies: Kiel Mead, Sarah Natkins of Camron PR, Mark Rozzo of Town and Country, Jonah Takagi, Jonathan Olivares, Dan Rubinstein from Surface, Amanda Dameron from Dwell, and Alex Williams from Rich Brilliant Willing. Not to mention the six or seven tables full of design luminaries that were lined up behind us. We all had a lot to celebrate — it was a great year for New York design!
